Circus Trans Formation 3

Our Circus Trans Formation In Action training programme is still at the core of Caravan’s activity, and continues to develop new generations of social circus trainers. It’s the outcome of a 5-year European research carried out by 2 universities, 8 Caravan members and the Caravan office, resulting in the development of a framework of competences for social circus trainers.

We continue to use our Guidebook for Social Circus Trainers to teach social circus trainers across the world and produce international exchanges of ideas.

Circus in Trans Formation in Action 3 concluded this year in December, creating a strong group of inspiring trainers, that continue to develop partnerships after the training.
